Statement Style - Options

The presentation of the files is either Combining or Combined.
  • Combining - Produces statements at the Fund level as mapped within Web-GAAP. That is, all SCC's for each fund are rolled into the 0000 SCC for that fund, if that is how the mapping is set.
  • Combined - Combines each Fund/SCC to the corresponding Fund Type. (General, Special Revenue, etc for Governmental fund category).

The Combined and Combining options work slightly differently depending on the trial balance being used. The following illustrate how they work for Governmental funds for this trial balance.
